ADD

With all the undeservedly overpriced wine on the market today, it’s easy to say we’ve found a great deal. Nevertheless, Fontsainte’s Demoiselle takes “value” to the next level: a time-tested terroir and generations of savoir faire yield hedonistic drinkability, uncommon complexity, and long-term cellaring potential, all at an unchanging and quite accessible cost. Century-old Carignan with a hearty dollop of Grenache and Mourvèdre is responsible for this dark, meaty, garrigue-ridden stallion. If past vintages are any indicator, you’ll want to enjoy this today, tomorrow, and much farther down the line. –Anthony Lynch
